A planet that can only be interesting to women. Call me when they find a planet with Lamborghinis on the surface, with a core consisting of one, melted, 1958 Plymouth Fury

A "mere" 40 light years seems so close, and yet without a warp drive, not even generation travel would realistically get you there. We need a warp drive. Of course, if we could efficienty reach to 55 Cancri e, it would sure kill today's diamond industry! Still, when I heard that in the news last night, I was duly fascinated. Only so few years ago, many people were still doubting the existence of any other planets existing in the universe, outside of the Solar System. If that can be believed (then or now).

Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
